    Frogspawn?

    Looks like I'm going to get a frog spawn for my nano & I haven't had the time to do as much research as I normally would.

    I know they're agressive stingers & need to be far enough away from the other coral that they don't sting it, but what else do I need to know? Do they have any special care or are there any "gotchas" with them?

    Thanks!

    Cool

    frog spawns aren't all that agressive but do give them space. they grow fairly quick. one of my favorite LPS. they like moderate light and low to moderate flow.

    Thanks Johnny, I can't find anything on feeding them. Will they eat mysis or do they live off light?

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    they will live just fine off of light alone, but they will accept a meaty chunk of shrimp every now and then. since they are a hard coral, they do require proper calcium and alkalinity levels to do well. They are one of my favourite lps, too.

    As the others said above, they will do fine under just the light and you don't have to feed them directly at all. They will catch enough of whatever is in the watercolumn when you feed the tank. If they are happy, they will indeed grow very fast. try and get a nice Pink/Green type as they are very pretty and do add nice color to the tank.

    It's a neon green frogspawn, the pink / green one's a bit out of my current budget.

    I'm getting it because

    1) I'd like to have something the for the false percs to host in other than the riccordia they're currently pissing off. I know no way to know if it'll work, but I'm hoping if I move the riccordia & put the frog spawn where the it was... Many people have told me frogspawn is a good alternative host for them.

    2) They do look pretty cool

    3) I have nothing green in the tank, besides algea.

    4) I'm trying to avoid adding more soft coral, I want to get into lps & sps. So I thought I try it over xenia.

    Cheers!

    Yeah from what I've read almost any euphyllia sp. coral are readily adopted by clowns.

    Krugar, I have a very small frogspawn frag that split from the main colony, light green with pink tips. It's all yours if you want it....let me know.
    Keep passing the open windows!
